The Pohoda summer music festival is known for its eco-friendly approach. Hence, its organisers decided to dispatch two special trains.

They will do so in cooperation with the state-run railway passenger carrier ZSSK. The two trains will leave on July 11 and 14, i.e. on the days when the festival starts and ends.

There are 350 seats guaranteed, the ZSSK wrote in the press release.

One of the trains will leave for Trenčín, where the 23rd edition of the festival is held, from Bratislava. Train tickets cost €9.90. The latter will go to Trenčín from Košice. The prices range from €10.90 to €14.90, depending on the station.

Tickets can be purchased here. However, they are valid only for the special trains.

Save money and the environment

Pohoda goers can look forward to a DJ playing on the train travelling from Košice. Moreover, anyone who decides to take the special train to the festival will get a hat and backpack from the ZSSK.

The special trains cost 20 to 47 percent less than normal trains.

Moreover, each Pohoda fan that leaves their car at home and gets on the train can save up to 22.2 kilograms of carbon dioxide on the Bratislava-Trenčín route and 57.6 kg on the Košice-Trenčín route.

Shuttles to the airport will also be running more frequently.
